In 2019, PUSD is conducting a series of surveys to gather input from students, parents, staff, and community members as part of the development of the Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP).
The State of California has changed the way education is funded. California now requires school districts to develop a Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP). The LCAP requires school districts to gather input from students, teachers, parents, community members, and public agencies to determine the goals, actions, and budget priorities for the district.
The LCAP must focus on eight areas identified as state priorities. The plan will also demonstrate how the district's budget will help achieve the goals, and assess each year how well the strategies in the plan were able to improve outcomes. In addition to these eight areas, PUSD may also identify and incorporate in its plan goals related to our own local priorities.

Since 2016, PUSD has partnered with Thoughtexchange, the online learning process, to engage parents, staff and community and inform our district's priorities for the district’s LCAP and budget development.
